In 2013, Rolling Stone put Dave Matthews Band on its list of the "50 Greatest Live Acts Right Now," observing, "Two decades in, DMB still know how to surprise their fans." The group's 2014 North American summer tour may be its most surprising yet. "A Very Special Evening with Dave Matthews Band" will feature the group delivering two sets per evening, performing songs from throughout its career. Dave Matthews Band will wind through numerous configurations - from electric to acoustic, from full-throttle numbers featuring the entire band to more intimate moments featuring small groups of band members - including a stripped-down pairing of Matthews with guitarist Tim Reynolds, performing as an acoustic duo, as they occasionally do when the band is off the road. A variety of guests will join the band throughout the summer. Last summer's Dave Matthews Band run topped Billboard's Hot Tours chart in September 2013. The Dallas News noted, "the band's musicianship deserves undivided attention…For nearly three hours that organic blend of instruments, voices and songs swept through a crowd eager to spend all night with the Dave Matthews Band."

Rent in Broadway RENT
Players by the Sea
Rent is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Rent has become a pop culture phenomenon since its 1996 Broadway debut, with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages. Loosely based on Puccini's La Boheme, the show follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create on New York's Lower East Side. The physical and emotional complications of HIV/AIDS pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom and Angel. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an observer to his own life. His flirtatious ex-girlfriend Maureen makes performance art, while her new partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his ideals for a rich wife and is on the outs with his former friends. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this ground-breaking musical. This is exuberant, passionate, and joyous theatre for young and old.
